DIY Glitter Magnets - an easy craft idea for kids too. J in the Library's note: Though glitter is almost guaranteed to be messy, this is a relatively easy project that would only take 2 library classes, or 2 meetings of a maker club.
Make little fluff flowers by sticking Q-tips into styrofoam balls. Would be fun to paint the ball a light yellow, then have darker yellow or orange on the Q-tips. Would be a nice craft for the kid to make and put in vases around the house
